My camera fell down on the bathroom tiles and now my corners are black. Looks like the aperture got moved or so. Anyways, we played in 20 cm snow up on the mountain. With all that snow it was much easier to get up and down. But the restaurant car didn’t make it today. The way home is mostly downhill, so we had good fun taking running starts and sliding a few meters down the streets. Every now and then suddenly our boot got good grip again and we nearly layed down on our faces.
Why is there no great possibility in HTML to enter a timestamp with timezone information? HTML5 brings us a nice timestamp input widget with
<input type="datetime-local">. But that’s just local time, whatever that might be on the client. What kind of fool came up with this? Almost good, mostly bad. Now I have the option to add custom timezone select boxes next to the timestamp input fields (or just one timestamp select box in front of all timestamp fields) or just ignore that useless HTML5 crap and go with an
<input type="text"> instead. Sigh.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Happens to us all the time with test devices, too. :-( And then you gotta start all over again because you most likely do not get the previous one where you already set up your stuff.
@email@example.com Thanks! Woohoo, now it’s also white down here: https://lyse.isobeef.org/tmp/schnee-2023-12-01.jpg Today’s walk is going to be even better.
Up on the mountains there was snow. Could already been seen from down here. The path was very slick. Heaps of people tramped down the snow and teamed up with the sun to transform it into ice. I was glad that I wore my good hiking boots. I cannot imagine how the mountain restaurant owner’s car will come down this evening without sliding off that steep, icy road. I haven’t seen tire chains and said forest trail is never gritted.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Roofs and greenery have a thin white coating.
The snowplow just drove by. Only to salt, though.
@email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org Oh nice! It continued a bit, too. But it didn’t remain on the ground. I didn’t leave the house, but I reckon I’ll enjoy it tomorrow. Currently it’s raining, like most of the day.
Oh yeah, we have our first snowfall down here. Nice thick flakes, too. Melts instantly, though.
@email@example.com Hell yeah, this is sooo cool! :-) Thank you for showing us, too. <3
@prologic I always aggressively jump over this stupid shit and never listen to it. That means I might miss some actual good stuff right after the garbage they advertise. But I’m not willing to seek back.
@firstname.lastname@example.org My brain always reads this as “f” and then I think: what the heck? A split-second later it occurs to me, right, it’s an extinct letter. What was it again? Hmm. Ah, an ancient “s”! Every single time. In all those years, I haven’t gotten used to it. :-)
@email@example.com The former is Swiss German as they do not have the “ß” and always use “ss” instead. Everywhere else the sharp s is used in that case. I always wonder how the Swiss then distinguish between “In Maßen” and “In Massen”. :-)
On the descent we got caught in a sudden thunderstorm and blundered into soft hail. Basically got sandblasted. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2023-11-24/
for i doin shell scripts. Turns out, that walks over all positional arguments. So I reckon my
for i in "$@"; docan now be shorter from now on. Very interesting in that detailled explanation to see all the – at least to me – inconsistent handling of semicolons and line breaks.
@firstname.lastname@example.org You’re good, it’s POSIX-compliant. ;-) I also was taught
$* first instead of
"$@". Looks like a common thing. :-) Shell has just soooooo many quirks and inconsistencies, it is quite hard to master it. But we’ll never get rid of it.
@email@example.com Very cool! I have something similar: https://git.isobeef.org/lyse/gelbariab/-/blob/master/rss-proxys/youtubeuploadsfeed.py
@prologic Oh! :-D It’s exactly what it looks like, it’s an old castle built around 1250 and burned down when hit by lightning in 1865: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hohenrechberg_Castle
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh, I actually thought that the pin might be some kind of a reference. But I didn’t figure out it was Czech. I guess the dog was doing dog stuff and hence especially the white got a bit dirty. :-) Yeah, they sometimes have some strange choices for their cosplay.
You’ll never guess what I learned from https://www.uninformativ.de/blog/postings/2023-11-19/0/POSTING-en.html. I’ve never seen
for i do in shell scripts. Turns out, that walks over all positional arguments. So I reckon my
for i in "$@"; do can now be shorter from now on. Very interesting in that detailled explanation to see all the – at least to me – inconsistent handling of semicolons and line breaks.
@email@example.com Ah, that makes sense now.
@thecanine Cool, what uniform is he wearing?
@firstname.lastname@example.org What do you mean by “cattle looking buildings”, which photo number? I don’t see any buildings that look like cows. Or what is the other meaning of “cattle”?
@email@example.com Hmmm, random sort for the genres? I also do miss power metal. :-) But I generally listen to music that’s on my own computer. No waste of network resources and just works all the time.
